    Every time I see Dan Sankey he raves about your mandolin Steve. He let me play if for a bit and if I was looking for a new mando, I'd be looking a little closer

    Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

    We're there now, arrived around noon Thursday, great jamming last night,. Lots of campers already present. From the jamming I predict it's going to be a great festival.

    We just got back home a couple of hours ago. We hated leaving. SummerGrass has been one of our favorite festivals over the last 20 years and this year's festival was even more of a treat because the weather was so good...

    Nice and cool (>60F) evenings and overnight, and through most of the morning until the marine layer disappeared, then warming (<85F) in the afternoon until about 5 or 6pm when the marine layer forms and cools again. Very mild winds, absolutely beautiful sunsets. Even the mosquitoes were reduced because of the cool evenings.

    The bands we watched were excellent, but my wife and I do festivals mostly for jamming, and that was wonderful! All of our main band was there, just jamming and having fun. Others, friends and new folks, joined in and we were going until 1 or 2am most nights. What a great time!!! I played DB and banjo just about equal time for the jamming and played mandolin in the mornings just for a little quiet reflection.

    Our next event is an Alaska bluegrass cruise in a couple of weeks. More jamming!!!
